That same sort of plastic grass has neighbors up in Ballard furiousthey want real grass in their parks, and they’ve launched a campaign to thwart the city’s attempt to install artificial FieldTurf at the Loyal Heights playfield. So far, their crusade is being brushed aside by the Parks Department.

Check out the group’s (admittedly histrionic, and slightly bizarre) website, Neighbors for Natural Spaces in Ballard.
